In Riga apartments secondary market in terms of number of concluded transactions is dominated by Kengarags and Purvciems. In 2015 each month there has been an average 400 transactions with secondary market apartments. Real estate transactions compared to the previous month increased by 5%. This increase reflects a market recovery after changes in temporary residence permit regulations. Also, that the issue of "dropped-off key" repossessions is now legally clarified.

  In the second half there has been slightly increased activity in the house market, as well as in the market for residental development land. Buyers are primarily interested in modern high-quality homes in areas with good infrastructure and orderly surroundings, but such properties at affordable prices are limited. Demand is typically for houses with an area of 200-250m2, with 1000 to 1200 sq.m. of land.

By contrast, in this year prestigious homes can be rented for half of that price. Significant price changes have not occurred only in the cheapest Jurmala housing segment, which includes the secondary market apartments and separate rooms in the home.
